Extending the Microsoft Build Engine
Watch as Sayed Ibrahim Hashimi joins Robert in this episode. Sayed wrote a best-selling book on the Microsoft Build Engine, showing you how to maximize your control over the build and deployment process. Here Sayed covers updates for his MSBuild book and discusses Visual Studio extensibility. He briefly touches on the typical extensibility model that Visual Studio has, and then he dives into some areas that extend Visual Studio, but not in the typical way. He also shows how you can easily create a project that completely replaces the built in build process.
